Weight 5 lb 4 oz. (2.38 kilos). Size 29 x 11.5 cm (11 ½ x 4 ½ inches)
This large antique flat-bottomed Jambati singing bowl has unusually thick walls and is therefore quite heavy for its size. It has a lightly grooved lip, decorative bands encircling the outer rim, and circles at its centre.
It has a lovely third octave C fundamental (129Hz) with a subtle pulse and a long sustain when struck with a padded mallet. The rim note is the same sweet C3 but readily builds to a nice Middle G (384Hz) if desired. The C3 note is close to concert pitch.
This is a very nice example of this heavy bowl type, structurally sound, clean and stain-free.
A Tibetan silk brocade cushion, a padded striker, and a suede ringer are all included in the price.
